Bad Altitude on Zack Greinke

This article is built upon a premise that's almost entirely speculative (as its author acknowledges), but it's interesting, and it raises some good questions. Did Zack Greinke recently leave the Royals because pitching for that wretched organization is killing his soul? Should we be surprised that there haven't been more Eli Manning types of situations, in which a young, superstar-type talent goes out of his way to avoid playing for a bad organization? And what would happen to teams like the Royals, Rockies and Pirates if baseball players started doing that?
